Back in February, Colorado thrashers Havok dropped “Phantom Force,” the blistering lead single off their upcoming album V, along with its seizure-inducing music video. Today, March 27th, they’ve followed it up with the very topical “Post-Truth Era,” which opens V in incendiary fashion. Check the song out below via its lyric video created by Cloud Music Typography.

“‘Post-Truth Era’ is debuting at a very uncertain time for humankind,” Havok guitarist-vocalist David Sanchez commented of the song. “Many things are unclear at the moment, so I hope that this song will resonate with people. Our species has overcome so much to get us where we are today. We should not take this for granted. Please pay attention to the lyrics and understand that we have the power to change our world. We need to read between the lines, while keeping our spirits high. Know that we are truly all in this together and we will come out of this situation, stronger and wiser than ever.”

V is set for a May 1st release via Century Media Records and will be available in an array of limited-edition packages, including digipak CD and as LP on 180-gram vinyl with poster. In addition to an unlimited black vinyl version, the album will be pressed in the following limited colored editions, which are up for pre-order now.
